There's something about a cozy, intimate Italian restaurant that's warm and welcoming. That's what we found when having dinner with friends at La Fontanella. This was our second visit. There are a few tables outside on the sidewalk (overlooking a parking lot...) where it might be pleasant on a warm evening. Instead we sat inside at a cozy table for... More

We are back in Fl and have been to Fontanella's 6 or 7 times in the last 5 weeks. Our meals continue to be outstanding every time. The Osso bucco is my favorite - very meaty, falls off the bone, well flavored sauce and al sentence vegetables. The chicken sorrentino is also outstanding - light tomato basil sauce with hearty...

Mo, And his entire family and staff our outstanding hosts and it one of the best Treasures in Bonita Springs. When they have Cannelloni on the Menu be sure to order it; I order this whenever I know they have it because it is the best I have ever tasted and the sauce makes it a winner for sure. If... More

The food is outstanding. First time, every time. The atmosphere is not great and there is no bar. They only serve beer and wine. But the food will not disappoint.

Our favorite neighborhood restaurant for a consistently excellent meal and service. We have been to La Fontanella as a couple and with large groups and the food and service have been excellent every time. It is noisy, especially during the season, but is worth the visit. Make reservations early and enjoy a great meal.

This is a small neighborhood real italian restaurant. Their food is always consistently good. Reservations hard to get in season as it is a small restaurant and busy so call early.

Located in a strip mall and very quaint inside, this place is like a hidden gem. I had the shrimp pasta and my husband had the steak with peppers, onions and potatoes. Both dishes were cooked to perfection and the service was impeccable.

This is one of our regular dining spots that we go to when we want Italian. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. It is loud, as others have pointed out. We have always had good service. They do pack the people into the restaurant, so the tables are close together. Like most restaurants in SW Florida you... More

Very crowded and over priced the food was really just OK. Nothing memorable. The menu looks good but the entrees we had were overcooked and disappointing. Veal Marsala, so over done. Too bad.
